Ann is from Gunnison and has studied wildflowers for over thirty years. You can find her as the snow recedes searching out the early glacier lilies, pasque flowers, and marsh marigolds. During the summer months, when she is not teaching school, Ann spends her days capturing the beauty of the flowers and spectacular vistas through watercolor mediums. Her years of practicing and leading mindfulness meditation have led her to a deeper presence among the flora. It was a natural fit that she would combine the love of wildflowers and the practice of retreating into meditation to bring Mindfulness in the Meadow to the Crested Butte Wildflower Festival.
